Senator Rand Paul to Headline CVA ‘Veterans and Military Town Hall’ Forum in South Carolina

By Concerned Veterans for America

July 27 Event is Second in Series of New Hampshire and South Carolina Forums 
with Leading Policymakers 

Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) today announced that Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) will headline its Veterans and Military Town Hall event in Charleston, South Carolina, on Mon., July 27.

This policy forum, the second in CVA’S ‘Defend & Reform’ Policy series, will continue to focus on key issues affecting veterans, members of the military and their families, and—by extension—all Americans.

The CVA ‘Veterans and Military Town Hall’ series will be held around the country over the summer and fall of 2015. Each event will feature opening remarks from a leading policymaker, a conversation with CVA’s CEO Pete Hegseth, and a Q&A with veteran members of the audience. These events are intended to help shape the national conversation on issues that matter most to veterans and military families.

Pete Hegseth, the CEO of Concerned Veterans for America, released the following statement regarding this event:

“Our nation is at a critical turning point in history. Now, more than ever, veterans and military families deserve to hear firsthand from leading policymakers on pressing issues that will shape the future of the United States. South Carolina is home to both Army and Marine basic training bases, making it an ideal location to host a robust policy discussion centered on issues affecting veterans, members of the military, and their families. We look forward to Sen. Rand Paul’s participation in this Town Hall event that seeks to encourage a conversation on ensuring a bright future for our nation, our veterans and our military.”

The ‘Veterans and Military Town Hall’ Series is a continuation of the Concerned Veterans for America ‘Defend and Reform’ Policy Series, an ongoing series of policy reform events that CVA has hosted in Washington, D.C., and across the country since 2012.

The mission of Concerned Veterans for America is to advocate for policies that—and support policymakers who—preserve the freedom and prosperity that veterans and their families so proudly served to defend. Through policy development, principled advocacy, and grassroots outreach, we are building a pro-freedom movement, led by those who fought for it. CVA is leading the charge to give veterans a voice in the growing debate over the future of America’s military and national security, as well as fighting for long-overdue accountability and reform at the Department of Veterans Affairs.
